Sanjay Leela Bhansali has stepped out since the ‘Padmavati’ row broke out a few weeks ago, which led to the release of the film being delayed by a few weeks.

The filmmaker, who has been threatened by Rajput Karni Sena, was spotted with police protection at Mumbai airport, who was heading to Delhi to appear before a 30-member parliamentary panel to discuss the ‘Padmavati’ situation. A source told Deccan Chronicle, “Since there is a bounty on his head, one does not know what anyone can do. Hence, Bhansali has been staying away from the limelight. Normally one can see him roaming around Versova where he stays. He even carries his Ganesh idol himself on foot to immerse it. He did it this year too. But in the event of this fatwa of sorts, he did not want to come out. He has also been accorded police protection and it is much more than what Deepika has been given as well.”
